90-90/21 Tire

Ok, I had the tire put on yesterday and on the ride home I found rubbing on the fender. It seemed to only be at the front tip of the fender but after pulling it off it was also rubbing on the metal support underneath. I am looking at it thinking of how I can resolve this with a quick stop at Autozone. This fender only needs to go up maybe 1/32nd a 1/16th at the most.. Any suggestions?

Which brand tire, the Metz shouldn't be quite that close. If the metal support is rubbing you will probably need to attempt to reshape the bracket, or drill out the holes to move it up a bit.

Elongate the fender bracket mounting holes.
